to think that could happen. if hillary clinton does run, i find it hard to believe that the andrew cuomos and martin o'malleys of the world stay in. less clear for jeb. he's kind of the idealogical, the guy who can mash the conservatives and the kind of establishment. >> the purist versus the pragmatist. >> it's not clear to me that clinton is the natural heir to the obama coalition. is she to you? >> there is no natural heir. people want you to earn it. i think there's no argument out there that she hasn't earned it. she has. and you know, i think that she has done remarkably well as the secretary of state. and who was talking about it earlier? kevin was. that when she speaks, everybody in this country listens. you know, she is a voice of authority on so many issues. and also, this is the year of the woman. >> it's going to happen. and perry, here are the two most popular figures we tested in the last nbc/wall street journal poll, boast weth were named cli. bill and hillary, their approval ratings higher than the president's. >> that said, she's an overwhelming favorite. the heir, intere
, including governor christie, a republican, and governor cuomo, a democrat, should be deeply disappointed and, yes, angry. >> we have a moral obligation to hold this vote. the people are out of their homes. the people who are cold. the people without food. the people who lost their jobs. they don't have time to wait. >> to ignore it, to ignore the plight of millions of american citizens, unprecedented, they should reconsider or hang their heads in shame. >> for us in the northeast to be treated this way is unconscionable. i would ask the speaker to reconsider. i have never been angrier than i am right now. i'm usually proud of this house. tonight i am ashamed. shame on you, mr. speaker. >> a spokesman for john boehner said he is committed to seeing the bill passed this month. >>> it's not just washington where new policies are going into effect, in states across the land new laws are on the books and in effect impacting everything from social media to the minimum wage and more. in maryland, there are big changes when it comes to same-sex marriage which is now legal in that state. pete william
and this bill gets passed. he has been in close contact with governor cuomo of new york. he has been talking about this with people who are concern and not only the folk who is live in new york and new jersey, but lawmakers are who are expressing anger that it didn't move through the house. they live in the areas that were most deeply affected. peter king who is from new york had harsh words for speaker boehner. speaker boehner's office released a statement saying he is dedicated to moving it through by the end of the month. we will have to see if that happens and there is a lot of pressure on him to do that. in terms of the other things they will be focused on, he still has to name a number of his cabinet positions. one of the names that has been floated, normer senator chuck hegel and he got criticism for comments he made and president obama signalled that that criticism has not dissuaded him. >> from honolulu, thank you very much. >> how is it possible that this is a political issue. we are here today and we can vote on this. the votes are clearly there. >> up next, more on the out rage o
for less drama than speaker boehner managed to anger chris christie, andrew cuomo, the entire northeast constituency and then some. now i guess he's had a change of heart. is that right? >> he drew a lot of bipartisan fire. and peter king after firing some broad sides at speaker boehner and who on the floor suggest that republicans stop donating money to the republican party until this thing gets straightened out as a means of retribution, peter king emerged from that meeting with other tri-state area lawmakers and says what's done a done. my anger this morning was a lifetime ago. apparently the speaker patched things up to a sufficient agree with peter king. i don't know about the democrats from that area. with his offer now to put a bill on the floor for $9 billion. a down payment sof $9 billion, the most urgent need is flood insurance for those folks on the coast of new jersey, new york, and connecticut. put that on the floor on friday. just a day after the new congress begins. and pledges to do the $51 billion on january 15th. here's the problem all along. the speaker did not want t
is certainly much more than andrew cuomo and hillary clinton certainly putting their names out. joe biden is saying, yeah, 2016. maybe. >> he is not going through the ritual of saying -- he is clearly it does interest me. it's hard to -- i would separate this from presidential politics. as hard as that is for somebody like us. >> come on. it's tough. i do think this represents the fact that at the end of the day particularly in your intense dead looirn situation personal relationships do matter. two men that have been in the senate and know each other. i don't know of if i particular affection, they know each other and they know what makes the other tick. they know what the other incentives are. the personal relationships can matter. there's no question. i think it will give sort of credibility to joe biden's standing, and they will show the value of that kind of institutional knowledge and seniority. >> they say it's the deal and it's the program meter is 450,000 with an extension of the patch in amt and extension of unemployment benefits and all these sorts of things. are both sides abl
